About the STEAM Academy
Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, Union Point Elementary will become Union Point STEAM Academy for grades Kindergarten, first, and sixth. This STEAM school is open to students at all levels of academic achievement. S.T.E.A.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, and a STEAM School focuses on these subjects to help students gain the skills required to succeed in today’s challenging world. Focus is on: the ability to think critically and solve complex problems
The STEAM curriculum will also foster a science and mathematics-rich environment starting in kindergarten to assist in developing students who will do well in these subject areas at higher levels. Accelerated science and math courses will also be offered to increase the rigor and set students on a pathway that will allow them to complete college level courses in high school and place them at an advantage when competing for the high-tech, high-wage jobs of the future. Currently, science and engineering jobs are growing 70 percent faster than other occupations.
